These photos were taken Saturday afternoon at the Beer Camp on Tour craft beer festival held at Queen Mary Events Park and presented by the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.
This was my first time attending Beer Camp, and while I had heard some negativity about last year’s event, it was pretty evident to me that they had learned from whatever mistakes those were as this was truly an amazing event to close out LA Beer Week. While I did not make the effort to count all the breweries in attendance, there were reportedly at least 100 breweries, pouring well over 200 beers. In addition to the beer, there were a dozen food trucks, live music from The Expanders and Orgone, games, plenty of shade and much cooler temperatures than the 100+ degree weather we experienced at the kickoff festival last week.
According to Eventbrite, the breweries in attendance included:
Garage Project – Ayinger Brewery – Allagash Brewing Company – Anchor Brewing Company – Avery Brewing Co. – Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits – Beachwood Brewing – Belching Beaver Brewery – Bell’s Brewery Inc. – Brewyard Beer Company – Coronado brewing company – Council Brewing Company – Crux Fermentation Project – Dionysus Brewing – Eagle Rock Brewery – Garage Brewing Co. – Green Flash Brewing Co. – Hand-Brewed Beer – Hangar 24 Craft Brewery – High Water Brewing Company – HopSaint Brewing Company – Indie Brewing Company – Iron Triangle Brewing Company – La Quinta Brewing Co. – Lagunitas Brewing Company – Lost Coast Brewery – Lucky Luke Brewing Co. – MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. – Mission Trail Cider – Mother Earth Brew Co. – Ninkasi Brewing – No Clue Craft Brewery – Ohana Brewing Company – Phantom Carriage Brewery – Pocock Brewing Company – Pure Project – Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider – Saint Archer Brewing Company – San Fernando Brewing Company – Sanctum Brewing Co. – Scholb Premium Ales – Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. – Ska Brewing – State Brewing Co. – Stone Brewing – Strand Brewing Co. – The Brewery at Abigaile – The Bruery – The Great Beer Co., Inc – The Honest Abe Cidery – Transplants Brewing Company – Absolution Brewing Company – AleSmith Brewing Company – Alosta Brewing Co. – Angel City Brewery – Arrow Lodge – Arts District Brewing Company – Bagby Beer Company – Bear Republic Brewing Company – Boomtown Brewery – Bottle Logic Brewing – Bravery Brewing Company – Brouwerij West – Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – Dry River Brewing – El Segundo Brewing Co. – Enegren Brewing Company – Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.- Fort Point Beer Company – FrogTown Brewery – Groundswell Brewing Company – Karl Strauss Brewing Company – Kinetic Brewing Company – Ladyface Ale Companie – Last Name Brewing – Los Angeles Ale Works – Mad River Brewing Company – Maui Brewing Co. – Mike Hess Brewing Co. – Mikkeller – Modern Times Beer – Moonlight Meadery – Out of Bounds Brewing Co. – Pacific Plate Brewing Co. – Phantom Ales – Pizza Port Brewing Co. – Poseidon Brewing Company – Ritual Brewing Co. – Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing – San Diego Brewing Co. – Sixpoint Brewery – TAPS Brewery – The Brewery at Simmzy’s Burbank – The Lost Abbey – Three Weavers Brewing Company – Timeless Pints Brewing Company – Twisted Oak Tavern – Verdugo West Brewing Co. – Wiens Brewing – Wolf Creek Brewery – Yorkshire Square Brewery – Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company – Lincoln Beer Company – Zymurgy Brew Works and Tasting Room LLC – 101 Cider House
The breweries literally ran from A to Z (Absolution Brewing to Zymurgy Brew Works) and came from as close as Beachwood in Long Beach, to as far away as Garage Project in New Zealand.
Beer Camp also provided one of the more fun games that I have ever seen at a craft beer festival with their beer keg bowling which eventually evolved into a beer keg toss. Even though most people were not very successful at their attempts to knock over the stacked beer kegs, it seemed most enjoyed giving it their all.
Congratulations to the LA County Brewers Guild, all the attending breweries, vendors and volunteers for putting on a stellar event. Special thanks go to Mike and Peggy for the sunscreen, and the Sierra Nevada Brewing for the media pass. Cheers!
